Mary Poppins Returns Official Teaser Trailer
A new story begins with everyone’s favorite “nanny” as Walt Disney Pictures releases the official teaser trailer for their upcoming film Mary Poppins Returns. View trailer below.
“Mary Poppins Returns” stars: Emily Blunt as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure; Lin-Manuel Miranda as her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London; Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; and Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. The film also introduces three new Banks’ children played by Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and newcomer Joel Dawson. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
Who doesn’t remember growing up with Mary Poppins in some way, shape, or form. It’s literally a classic in both its literary form as well as the 1964 live-action / animated hybrid Disney film, which starred Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews as the famous Mary Poppins. I do remember hearing rumors and buzz news about Disney doing a sequel-ish with Mary Poppins, so I am curious about seeing this movie. This teaser trailer doesn’t show much, but does give a sense of this new Mary Poppin’s tale (mostly of showing off the cast). However, given the fact that the 1964 film is truly a classic, it’s going to be extremely hard to overtake or to even share in the same greatness as that particular film did. I love Emily Blunt and she’s a great actress, but (again) it’s going to be hard to step in the shoes that Andrews’s first donned many years back. Still, I am looking forward to seeing Mary Poppins Returns, but I’m still have some reservation about this movie.
Mary Poppins Returns arrives in theaters on December 25th, 2018
